I've spent a number of my hours in hospitals over the last few months while visiting. Basically, since Christmas, I've been in hospitals in Latrobe and Pittsburgh and several here closer to home. One of the things I have slowly come to accept is our new lords and masters getting a special ride in all the hospitals in the US.
They snuck up on us so slowly I'm sure most people haven't realized how common it is now to see the most exalted operatives hauled around the hospital on their very special mobility devices.
Remember when they used to push patients around in the hospitals?
